Marketing and business strategies are really important in order for a business to thrive. But there is something else that is needed as well… to work on your Inner Game.
Your Inner Game is everything that is going on within your inner world: your thoughts, emotions, beliefs, habits, attitude, energy. All of these have a real impact on the results that show up (or don’t show up) in your outer world.
Let me share a story with you that demonstrates the power of this….
In one of my client sessions, we were working on the copy for her new website that she was launching. As we started the session, I knew it wasn’t just the website copy we had to talk about.
I opened up with her that I thought something was going on under the surface around her website launch. Sure enough she shared with me the thoughts and feelings that had been coming up for her as she progressed the launch.
This client had been working really hard on her new website copy and positioning, but underneath the surface so much more was going on.
She was feeling massive fear, doubt, overwhelm and uncertainty about what she was doing. She was pushing through it, but it was hard and exhausting. Secretly, she wanted to pull the plug instead of moving the website forward.
This was an inner game block coming up that needed to be dealt with. Rather than her needing to pull back because she was going in the wrong direction. She wasn’t.
Launching the website was exactly what she needed to do, but some inner game work needed to be done first. If left unchecked, this block would have stopped her in her tracks. The website either wouldn’t get launched at all, or if it did, no matter how good the website copy was, it wouldn’t have helped her business much because of the energetic block that was still under the surface.
90% of the time when I work with clients, Inner Game blocks are what we need to deal with first before we can get into implementing effective business strategies.
With this client, once we established what was going on, we did a process that cleared her block within the first 15 minutes of our time together. She felt an extreme amount of relief as she could feel the block had shifted. This was actually a block that she had been struggling with for YEARS without her knowing it.
After that, we got into the website copy and other business strategies. I stopped her about halfway through the session and mentioned to her that she LOOKED like a different person.
She looked younger! Her energy had increased, her spark was back, and she said she felt so much lighter. The energetic weight she was unknowingly carrying had gone. She had renewed passion and clarity running through her about what she was creating in the world and the impact she could have.
Her INNER WORLD had changed. Not on a superficial or temporary level, but on a deep and long-lasting level.
Without shifting her Inner Game here, it wouldn’t have mattered how good the website copy was. It wouldn’t have got her business to where she wants to take it. I know cause I’ve seen it time and time again with my clients.
Inner game blocks can limit or stop momentum from happening.
It is like an energetic wall stopping the flow of energy.
A week on from that session, and I got an email from her super excited about everything that had happened in the week, including her making massive strides forward (with complete ease) on a big audacious goal that she has had for years. Exciting!
It blows me away just how simple it can be to get people unstuck, focused, energised and motivated again. But then, Inner Game work is definitely one of my gifts. Clearing Inner Game blocks for people is easy for me, so that they can get on with creating the business they want, with much more ease and flow.
What people often don’t realise is that Inner Game work is ALWAYS the foundation of creating the results they want.
This isn’t an isolated story. So many of my clients have experienced phenomenal shifts from the Inner Game work I have done with them.
I know there are so many business owners at the moment struggling with feeling flat, unmotivated and uncertain about how to move forward in their business. I would love to help put some spark back into your world if that is you.
I’m so excited to be running my popular Awaken Your Inner Game program again. I haven’t run it for a few years, but it is time to bring it back and create some much needed change. This is a 6 week transformational program for small business owners who want to shift their business results… yes, even during these tougher economic times.
